Comparing the Association, Educational Opportunities Fund,
and Legal Advocacy Fund

The Association—with more than 100,000 members, 1,300 branches, and 550 college/university institution partners nationwide—advocates education and equity. Since its founding in 1881, members have thoroughly examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day—educational, social, economic, and political.

The AAUW Educational Opportunities Fund—the world's largest source of funding exclusively for graduate women—supports aspiring scholars around the globe, teachers and activists in local communities, women at critical stages of their careers, and those pursuing professions where women are underrepresented.

The AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund provides a support system for individuals seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination. LAF works to combat sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace.

About This Web Site

The earliiest AAUW Texas web presence was established by state president Nora Garza in 2000. When Malinda Gaul took office in 2002, a fresh start was made by Mynda McGuire, the first AAUW member webmaster and designer on the HOMESTEAD platform. That website was ready in less than 3 months.

Mynda expanded the site under state president, Pat Ross, 2004-2006. It became a strong tool for branches and a repository of much of the history of AAUW in Texas in anticipation of AAUW Texas' 100th anniversary in 2008.

At the start of Linda Conger's term, 2006-2008, Margo Johnson took over as web maintainer and the site was completely re-designed by Debbie Campbell (West Harris County and Houston Branches) and moved to its current SITE5 platform.

Under AAUW Texas president, Jeannie Best, in 2013, the AAUW Texas website will be moving to the Site Resources platform sponsored by AAUW National. We are looking forward to a clean, crisp FRESH site.
